Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is the final resting place and holding the embalmed remains of President Ho Chi Minh, the most iconic and national hero of Vietnam.

The President Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is situated in Ba Dinh district, nearby Temple of Literature, West Lake, Hanoi Flag Tower, Imperial Citadel of Thang Long.

 



Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum was constructed in just two years from 1973 to 1975. Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum takes some inspiration from Lenin's in Moscow. Marble and granite is main material to build the mausoleum, features a three–stored structure. In the second store places the famous President’s body, lying as if he were sleeping in the simple clothes worn when he was alive. Above the portico of the mausoleum, the words "Chu tich Ho Chi Minh" (President Ho Chi Minh) can be clearly seen chiseled into the pediment, which is supported by twenty stout granite–covered pillars. The materials that constitute the building, from exterior granite to interior wood, were contributed by people from all over the country. Even the garden that encompassed the Mausoleum has a collection of plants and bonsais donated from all regions in Vietnam. Front side of the mausoleum is the 79 cycad trees, symbolizing Uncle Ho’s 79 springs of life.

In addition, Ba Dinh square in front of the Mausoleum is a place where President Ho Chi Minh declared the independence of Vietnam on September 2, 1945. The square has 240 patches of grass divided by intersecting concrete pathways; visitors are heavily discouraged from walking on the grass.

 

 

Besides, tourist can continue to explore Ho Chi Minh Complex by visiting the nearby Ho Chi Minh Museum, which contains an account of the man's life as told in allegory and his personal effects, and the Presidential Palace, on which grounds Ho Chi Minh lived after taking power (he never really moved in, contenting himself with living in the former electrician's quarters, then in a custom–built stilt house from the 1950s till his death).
